Why Every Boater In Arkansas Should Download The "EyeRescue" App

Insider : maritza

Developed exclusively to support 911 first responders and public safety agencies, RaftUp technologies launched a new first-responder and 911 safety app called "EyeRescue". It was built in partnership with the Osage Beach Missouri Fire Department and Osage Beach 911. 

Users of the old RaftUp app could use the "Social SOS" feature to share their location with other nearby users, friends, and family. The new technology features of the app allows first responders and 911 dispatch centers to receive a user's location on the water. Boaters are even able to follow the location of first responders in relationship to their own position. 

Jeff Dorhauer, Fire Chief of Osage Beach Fire Protection District on Lake of the Ozarks commented on the app saying, "The moment I learned about RaftUp, I knew it would benefit our response time and the way that our department could help to keep boaters safe on the water. Everyone takes their phones with them everywhere now. There is no reason for someone to be stranded for hours outdoors or on the water waiting for help. And in the case of an emergency, with EyeRescue, it's a life-saver. Plain and simple!"


As soon as you contact them, 911 dispatchers and public safety agencies now have the ability to view a live map of their monitored district, receive an audible notification when an SOS is activated, and begin tracking a victim's location with all of the emergency information shared in real time. First responders can communicate with victims via SMS text messaging, as well as send public service announcements via mobile push notifications.

The RaftUp app and its corresponding RaftUp EyeRescue tool are now live for residents and tourists on Lake of the Ozarks, and very soon several counties in Arkansas, such as Baxter County.Even better, public service agencies and 911 first responders can set up the RaftUp SOS technology in less than ten seconds.


 New and experienced boaters alike can discover cool new places and to find each other while on the water.The app is free and available for both Apple and Android phones. 

This app will save so many people out on the water. Download it on your smartphone today! If you would like to read more articles, click here. Thank you for reading and have a wonderful day!
